ts final you see a lot of things during the evening commute on l.a. roads but nothing quite like that. the space shuttle endeavour on its final 12-mile trek to the california science center. cbs reporter dave lopez on a slow crawl into the history books. >> reporter: just before 2:00 endeavour left the parking lot. sounds strange to say it, doesn't it? a space shuttle leaving a parking lot in inglewood? but there it was. down la tijera over to manchester where there were some very tight squeezes along the way. we were told in some spots endeavour would have about a 6" clearance with the wingspan. it came close. but no problems so far. it was a sight that caused a great deal of commotion. and it should caught quite a stir and looky-loos. when was the last time you saw something like this, this big, staring at you in a parking lot! the view is always better on
5:15pm
top of dad's shoulders. there was plenty to see and if you ever wondered how they can back up something this big, take a look. the multi-million dollar transporter did its job. smoothly backing endeavour into the place in a parking lot where it stayed there for more than six hours. the public loved it. the journey to the space museum began at exactly 11:30 last night. endeavour wheeled out of the hangar at the united terminal at l.a.x. slowly leaving the airport property on to sepulveda east way and la tijera. flashbulbs, cameras, all around. this machine made out of silicone, titanium, and ceramics that flew at 17,500 miles an hour in space going through the streets of los angeles at 2 miles an hour. so far, so good for an event that is not described as a once-
5:16pm
in-a-lifetime event but, rather, a once event. back here live on manchester if you are not familiar with the city of los angeles, we're not far from the forum. i'll step out of the way for a couple of seconds and let you take a close-up look at endeavour middle of manchester boulevard, a very busy thoroughfare here in the city of los angeles. they are now making the transfer from the transport to a -- to a smaller transport and it's going to go across the bridge and continue its journey tomorrow. i was wondering, do you think that this baby could have any way, anyhow, gone through the streets of san francisco? i'd love to see it go down lombard. >> i was going to say the twisty part of lombard? [ laughter ] >> we thought it would go overhead but you got the best close-up view. i guess after this dave, how long before people are going to get to see it on display? this is a great thing today. >> reporter: it will be on display open to the public on
